Publisher's descriptionEdit

Captain Sulu of the U.S.S. Excelsior and his crew are kidnapped. When Federation-conducted negotiations come to a standstill, Captain James T. Kirk and the former officers of the U.S.S. Enterprise reunite to rescue their old comrade.

The officers learn carrying out their mission could prove difficult when the encounter the kidnappers - a greedy, little-known race called the Thraxians, who believe their way is the only way. Now the Thraxians are demanding super-powerful weapons in exchange for the hostages.

With no other alternatives, Kirk is forced to consider giving in to the Thraxians to save the Excelsior crew - a decision that could save a few, but endanger the lives of an entire star system...

InformationEdit

  • The back cover blurb calls the Beta Prometheans "Thraxians", which they are never called in the novel.
  • The story is dated to spring 2294; the Pocket Books Timeline adjusts this date 2293 to make it compatible with the Star Trek Chronology. The claim that Kirk has been retired for six months is also disregarded.
  • Mirage is stated to be one hundred fifty billion years old, making it ten times older than the universe itself.
  • Valtane's first name is given as Masoud. This was later contradicted canonically in Star Trek: Voyager.
  • Scotty speaks of travelling "hundreds of millions of light-years into deep space", which surely must be an exaggeration, as it would place them in another galaxy.
